Community concerns stop controversial trial at Anglesea’s Alcoa power station
BY ELEANOR WOODS ANGLESEA residents are expected to breathe a sigh of relief, with power giant ALCOA abandoning a controversial HiCal 40 fuel trial. The trial proposed to replace 0.5 per cent of the Anglesea Power Station’s annual coal use by burning 5000 tonnes of HiCal 40, a fuel made from treated aluminum waste. Alcoa’s Brendan Foran said the company decided to throw out the idea after the community expressed health concerns about increased levels of fluoride involved in burning HiCal 40 instead of coal. A fierce public outcry was demonstrated when more than 110 community members attended a meeting with ALCOA to address concerns. A petition fighting the trial racked up more than
150 signatures in its first two hours of circulation. Anglesea’s Amber Tutton said the community feared what she said were unsubstantiated HiCal 40 tests and refused to be “guinea pigs for a toxic waste trial”. Dale Roberts from the anti-trial community group said members were overjoyed when the message went out that it would not go ahead. “Everyone is just rapt. We got together and overthrew such a power. The question now is where is the waste going to go?” Roberts queried. One of the community’s main concerns was that the site for the new Anglesea Primary School was just a stone’s throw from the ALCOA Power Station. Parents feared the school’s students would bear the brunt of any environmental degradation caused
by HiCal 40 fuel trials. ALCOA said the decision to cancel the trial came not only as a response to community concern but also after finding a data error. Alcoa Anglesea Power Station Manager Stephanie Pearce said Alcoa’s strategic sustainability targets had provided the original business case for the trial but the discovery of the data error, during a management review, meant the project had officially been on-hold for a number of weeks. “Our continuing review into the data error indicated that a range of design modifications would be required for us to deliver Alcoa’s sustainability objectives for this project.” “This essentially meant that our original design is no longer viable and we have made the decision to cancel the proposed trial.”
Ms Pearce said community and stakeholder input had been considered when making the decision. “We have been operating safely in the Anglesea community for over 40 years and encourage questions and informed community debate about our operations.” “People can be assured that the alternative fuel trial - or any change to the power station process - would not have been considered if our robust technical and environmental, health and safety processes had suggested any health risk.” Surf Coast Mayor, Libby Coker welcomed the news. “It’s pleasing that Alcoa has listened to the community on this important issue,” Coker said.

Last week, councilâ€™s CEO Mark Davies and I attended a Municipal Association of Victoria briefing on the Bushfire Royal Commissionâ€™s final report and the Victorian Governmentâ€™s interim response. A constant theme of the forum was the need for councils to be appropriately resourced to deliver on findings directed at councils and existing fire preparation requirements. The Surf Coast Shire has since Black Saturday and before lobbied State and Federal Government for more resources to ensure our communities are prepared for the bushfire risk we face. While Surf Coast Shire made significant progress last year in increasing vegetation management and in the development of Neighbourhood Safer Places with a significant allocation of new resources, it is likely more resource demands will now be placed on the Surf Coast and other municipalities. The MAVâ€™s conservative estimate is that councils in Victoria may need more than $20million in extra revenue to deliver on the Royal Commissionâ€™s recommendations We look forward to clarity and support from the State Government in preparing our community for this yearâ€™s warmer months and implementing any recommendations from the Royal Commission that involve local government. Following the forum, last Friday Premier John Brumby visited Anglesea as part of the State Governmentâ€™s consultation sessions following the release of the Bushfire Royal Commissionâ€™s Final Report. It is important that Surf Coast residents take the opportunity to have input into the State Governmentâ€™s response to the Royal Commissionâ€™s findings. Surf Coast residents who would like to have
their say can email feedback directly to john. email@example.com Copies of the commissionâ€™s report and its recommendations are available at www. royalcommission.vic.gov.au
Coastal policies a major focus for federal election
The coming Federal Election is an important one for coastal Australia. With several marginal seats in coastal areas including Corangamite, consideration of coastal issues is important. The National Sea Change Taskforce, in which my colleague Libby Mears is a delegate, has released a ten-point plan for coastal Australia that can be found at the taskforceâ€™s website www. seachangetaskforce.org.au The plan sets out policy initiatives that need to be acted in to help address pressure on coastal communities. These include: â€˘ A call to adopt the recommendations of the parliamentary coastal inquiry, which was released in October 2009 â€˘ A new funding formula to enable coastal councils to respond to the social and economic needs of rapidly-growing coastal communities â€˘ Collection of accurate data by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on the impact of tourists and other non-residents in coastal areas. This data is not currently taken into account in allocating resources for coastal communities. We urge our candidates for Corangamite to prioritise issues of coastal sustainability, which affect all of us in Surf Coast Shire and beyond.

David Koch MP Member for Western Victoria Torquay Kindergarten needs support In Parliament I have highlighted the lack of facilities and support provided to parents of preschool-aged children in Torquay. Torquay Kindergarten currently provides services to 160 threeyear-old and four-year-old children on a weekly basis, but the Brumby government has failed to adequately plan for Torquayâ€™s rapid population growth. As a result, the kindergarten can no longer keep up with enrolments and itâ€™s unlikely that a threeyear-old kinder program will be offered next year. This will leave a gap in the development of childrenâ€™s social and learning skills. The preschool community in Torquay is keen to have kindergarten services expanded and has applied to have land at the current site. The committee has been told by Member for
for an expanded secondary school. This is despite the Brumby government failing to commit a single dollar to an expanded education facility at Torquay in the May 2010 Budget. Not allowing the kindergarten room for expansion denies its committee the opportunity to apply for funding grants it might otherwise have received. It is staggering that a growing regional city of more than14,000 residents has been left to languish as the kindergarten is stretched to full capacity. The Torquay Kindergarten Committee has been told a new kindergarten to cater for the growing needs of the Torquay community could be the best part of a decade away and will be located north of Torquay. Concern has been expressed that any new facility may be located at Armstrong Creek, 10 km up the highway, rather than at Torquay itself. From 2013 government requirements will demand all four-yearold children receive 15 hours of kindergarten time per week. Current facilities in Torquay will struggle to meet this demand. I have called on the Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development to be proactive and thoroughly examine the need for immediately expanding the current kindergarten facilities at Torquay.
Torquay stand-alone secondary college petition I remain dedicated in my support of the Torquay communityâ€™s push for full-secondary college education at a stand-alone green Surfcoast Schooling (CPATSS) has raised over 1000 signatures supporting this stand-alone proposal, which has been Coalition policy since July 2009. I recently met with Andrew Katos, the Torquay Kindergarten Committee and parents to discus the future of pre-school facilities in Torquay
Â Â? the Brumby government, the Liberal Nationals Coalition has
and kept safe if they are lost. On the week of August 16, Surf Coast Shire officers will conduct random doorknocks to ensure pets are registered. Registration is particularly important in ensuring the safety of your loved dog or cat. If your pet is not yet registered, I urge you to contact Council as soon as possible.
Hearing on Beach Hotel application
Council and members of the Jan Juc community have this week been preparing for the upcoming Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation hearing into the Beach Hotelâ€™s proposal to install 30 poker machines. The hearing will be held on Friday 20 August. The commissionâ€™s assessment of the socioeconomic and amenity impacts of the proposed installation of gaming machines is not the final decision on the Beach Hotelâ€™s application, but it is an important part of the assessment process. A decision of the commission on the gaming machines can be challenged to VCAT under the Gambling Regulation Act 2003. Council has opposed the proposal and, in order to gauge community views, has conducted a telephone survey of 400 Jan Juc and Torquay residents that will form part of the evidence on which the commission assesses the potential socioeconomic impacts of the proposal. As the Beach Hotel appealed councilâ€™s decision, VCAT will have the final say on the hotelâ€™s redevelopment proposal and proposed installation of gaming machines. This hearing will be held in November.

listened to the community and parents of students by making $20m available for a stand-alone years 7 to 12 secondary college in Torquay. Itâ€™s time those expressing their concerns about the lack of educational opportunities for students living in Torquay and Jan Juc are given a fair hearing rather than being personally insulted Â? Â? Â? Â should be better rewarded with greater community infrastructure from a government that has doubled its state revenue over the last 11 years. Torquay is in need of better health services, civic and cultural facilities, public transport and a greater police presence.
A lack-lustre approach to community consultation Despite only one bridge ever being discussed in the community consultation process for Barwon Heads during 2005 and 2006, the government subsequently pursed building two bridges. Â? Â? to support the views of his constituents and fully endorsed the governmentâ€™s two-bridge plan. This close-knit seaside community remains perplexed by this result and feels cheated that the government continues to push its own agenda with a sleight-of-hand. This is not a one-off instance and again demonstrates that ignoring community opinion is a legacy of Laborâ€™s style of government and its my way or no way mentality. The governmentâ€™s contempt for directly addressing community concerns was repeated by the Member for South Barwon when he recently told parents concerned with education facilities in Torquay that although he had to listen to their concerns, he and his government had already reached its decision.

Hope for Juc SLSC BY NATHAN HALE JAN JUC Surf Life Saving Club has been handed a ray of hope after it was left nearly $9,000 out of pocket when a supplier went bust last month. Just as it appeared the club would be left with an $8,800 loss and no funding available to apply for, State Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, broke the good news. â€œI have today raised these concerns with the Minister for Sport, James Merlinoâ€™s office and have been informed that the club is entitled to apply for a State Government Emergency Sports Equipment grant, and I will be backing this grant application 100 per cent,â€? said Crutchfield. â€œAs a member of the Jan Juc Surf Lifesaving Club I am fully aware of how much volunteer work goes into fundraising for these boards. I am certain the local community will also rally behind the club as it always does to ensure the club is able to provide
boards for the nipper program for this upcoming season.â€? The club had ordered and paid for 22 Nipper boards to be used as part of the clubâ€™s highly successful Surf Education Programme. With the boards valued at $400 each, the club has been left $8,800 out of pocket and without new equipment for this yearâ€™s vital education programme. Club president, Steve Jewson, said the loss has devastated the club. â€œThree months ago we ordered and paid for the boards and they were supposed to be with us in June. We rang the company and they told us they were having troubles with the suppliers and then we had an email saying delivery had been held up and then that there was a delay with the artwork,â€? he said. â€œSo it was one thing after another and then we get told they have been placed in the hands of administrators.â€? Anyone who can help the Jan Juc SLSC should phone Steve Jewson on 0418 525 653.

First class upgrade to Spring Creek Reserve A RE-ELECTED ALP Government will provide $600,000 for a first class upgrade for the Spring Creek Reserve Pavilion that services the Torquay Tigers Football, Netball and Cricket Clubs in Torquay on Surf Coast. Announcing the grant Federal MP Darren Cheeseman said the amount would enable a first class upgrade to the pavilion and was another step in making Spring Creek a eegional facility. â€œI was concerned before I committed to this project that we would get approval for a funding
amount that would mean we would be able to do the job properly,â€? Cheeseman said. â€œI didnâ€™t want to see something that was half baked.â€? â€œI am looking to do the sort of works that will stand the club in good stead for the next twenty years and be the next step in making Spring Creek a showpiece facility.â€? The grants would pay for a major refurbishment of the ground floor, a refurbishment to the entry area to provide larger store, a parentsâ€™ room, new
double doors to grandstand, a grandstand extension (including create a new embankment) a new function room, foyer and administration offices. There will also be works associated with sewer and stormwater for a total cost of $1.1 million. â€œSpring Creek Reserve is a wonderful natural amphitheatre and a great place to watch a game of football or cricket. For many, it is the spiritual home of Torquay,â€? Cheeseman said. â€œSpring Creek is also used by the Torquay Netball Club who are doing such a great job getting so many
women and girls participating in sport, and also a number of girls performing at the elite level.â€? â€œAll of these clubs will benefit from the new facilities and it will be a very big improvement to sports facilities in the town.â€? If re-elected, the ALP Government has also pledged $10.5 million to providing recycled water to Torquay, including Spring Creek Reserve. The new Torquay Sport and Civic Precinct, which the Federal Government is contributing $4 million is also now in the construction phase.

LORNE P-12 VCAL students are putting their hands out in a bid to raise funds for their latest project â€“ helping the homeless. The schoolâ€™s Victorian Certificate of Advanced Learning (VCAL) enterprise has been hailed in the past for its success. This latest student driven venture, called Give us 5 will see the students collect solely five cent pieces to buy materials to build planter boxes filled with vegetables and herbs for organisations throughout Victoria that help feed the homeless. Student Amanda Atkins, 17, said the project has been hugely rewarding. â€œItâ€™s a real eye opener. Itâ€™s good to see what these people are going through. It makes you realise how good we have got it,â€? she said. â€œDoing something to help feels really good.â€? Teacher Cherie Osta, who was honored earlier in the year for her contribution to last yearâ€™s VCAL program, is proud to be part of â€œsuch a bright young group of people.â€? â€œVCAL is such a great program. Because it is student driven we just never know where it is going to end up. It is so motivational for the kids,â€? Osta said. She and the schoolâ€™s VCAL coordinator Geoff Bird work hands-on with the students, brainstorming and inspiring ideas like this one to pursue. The concept to help feed the hungry emerged from group work and the students developed the way in which they would raise the money and make the planter boxes. Students are approaching other schools for support and are encouraging as many people as
possible to get on board the incentive. â€œIt is five cent pieces. That is it. No one needs them. We picked five cent pieces because they are pretty much redundant,â€? Osta said. People can donate their five cent pieces via the
Commonwealth Bank in Lorne, which is collecting on behalf of the VCAL students every Friday. Alternatively, drop collected coins to Lorne P-12 or call the school and ask how you can get on board the venture to help feed the homeless.
The Lorne P-12 VCAL team is asking Surfcoasters to spare some change to help make change. They are, clockwise from bottom left, teacher Cherie Osta, and students Amanda Atkins, Daniel Horward-Briggs, Tim Steven, Dom Maginness and Kane Smartt pictured with their mascot the Five Cent Bear.

Taking action on crime A COALITION Government will provide a nest of CCTV cameras for Torquay, Sarah Henderson, Liberal candidate for Corangamite announced last Friday. “This $150,000 funding commitment will include installation and a direct live feed to the Torquay Police Station,” Henderson said. Henderson will work with the Torquay Police, Torquay Commerce and Tourism Association Inc and the Surf Coast Shire to pinpoint the best location for these cameras. “These CCTV cameras will deter late-night violence and damage,” she said. “They will also be a useful tool in the fight against
crime during the peak summer period and schoolies week.” The CCTV cameras are part of the Coalition’s National Community Crime Prevention Programme. “The programme will provide funding support for grass roots projects that enhance community safety and prevent crime,” Henderson said. “Measures to be supported will include installation of CCTV and other security-related infrastructure. “The Coalition will commit $50million towards a full-blooded, sustained national approach to community crime prevention. “While local crime prevention has traditionally been the responsibility of the state and territories,
the Coalition recognises the need for a national contribution to crime-fighting efforts of local communities at grass-roots level. “Local crime drives out those for whom stable community life is important. It threatens house prices and discourages investment. In short, local crime is an instrument of destabilisation and neighbourhood decline.” Torquay Commerce and Tourism’s Martin Duke said the commitment is good news for Torquay. “It’s a good initiative which will hopefully stop the vandalism and graffiti of shop fronts,” he said. “It will also allow people to walk our streets in safety.”
News in brief Cyclist death THE ISSUE of road safety along the Surf Coast has again been highlighted with the tragic death of Torquay man Mark Jimmink last week. Jimmink was on his way home when he fell off his bike and was struck by a car on Horseshoe Bend Road last Monday around 6pm. The 50-year-old is survived by his wife, Sharon – a teacher at Oberon High School in Geelong – and his two children. Police believe a medical condition may have been the reason he fell off his bike before he was struck by the car. The driver of the car has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

AIREYS Inlet residents have been asked to comment on a council proposal for a special charge scheme. The scheme, which applies to drainage and pathway improvements in precinct two of Aireys Inlet – which includes the western side of the Surf Coast Highway – has already caused concern with residents. One resident, who contacted the Surf Coast Times, said the letter sent out indicated that the average cost to landowners for a normal block will be $4,000. “The letter sent out says that the overall cost of the project will be $1.7million, and that council will put up just $200,000 of that,” the resident said. A special information session on the special charge scheme will be held this Friday at the Aireys Inlet Community Hall.

Redevelopment finally underway THE RACV has moved to start work on its long-awaited Torquay Golf Club redevelopment following the Surf Coast Shire providing ‘in-principle support’ for the water harvesting proposal. The shire supported the harvesting proposal at its monthly meeting in July – subject to a number of conditions – which are to be finalised in forthcoming negotiations with council officers. RACV executive general manager of member interests, Sue Blake, said RACV would commence works within weeks. “RACV is pleased that the Surf Coast council has recognised the environmental benefits of the water harvesting proposal, and supports the use of this recycled water to sustain the golf course,” Blake said.
“RACV will now work closely with the Torquay Golf Club committee to finalise the staging of initial course works and minimise the disruption to golfers.” The redevelopment of the Torquay Golf Club includes an upgrade of the golf course, new dams and irrigation system and 130,000 new indigenous trees, shrubs and ground covers. The new resort building will include accommodation, dining, and extensive leisure facilities along with change rooms, lounge, spike bar, and a pro shop for golfers. RACV has appointed Grove Turf Constructions, a renowned builder of golf courses, to construct temporary tees and greens so that members can continue playing 18 holes of golf during the upgrading of the course.

Falls community fund LORNE’S Falls Festival has again committed $16,000 to its annual community fund. Applications are now open for the fun – which provides a great opportunity for the community to work together and achieve some fantastic resources for Lorne. The application process for the Falls community funds will remain open until Wednesday, September 15.
Submissions need to include a brief project outline, budget, timeline and explain how the project will benefit the Lorne community. Projects of any sized budget are welcome, however, those costing more than $16,000 need to show all additional funds required to complete the project have been secured. The allocation of funds will be determined 100 per cent by a community vote in October.
Information and application forms for the community fund are available from FoodWorks supermarket, Kafe Kaos, Lorne Greens, Fruits of the Forest and Australia Post. The fund was a great success last year and drew applications for a diverse range of projects, including local events, art projects, community fundraising activities and skill development programmes. Last year community votes resulted in funds
being granted to the Lorne Kindergarten ($4,041.70) for the purchase of new indoor and outdoor play equipment, educational resources and a vacuum cleaner; Lorne Aireys Inlet P-12 College ($6,600) to create a music recording studio; Lorne Historical Society, ($2,000) for Shipwrecks Trail plaques renewal; and Lorne Austswim Swim School ($3,358.30) for swim school equipment for local children.
Aireys’ new viewing platform ONE OF the Surf Coast’s most popular lookouts is being given a much-needed facelift. Aireys Inlet’s Eagle Rock viewing platform, near the Split Point Lighthouse, is being given a makeover, with work starting last week. The current work involves replacing the existing structure with a new steel-framed, timber-decked platform that will continue to offer spectacular cliff top views over Eagle Rock and towards Lorne. “While the new cantilevered platform will extend right to the cliff edge, its footings will be set back five metres to ensure long-term stability,” explained Great Ocean Road Coast Committee boss, Richard Davies. “In addition, the design reflects and
celebrates the site’s unique aesthetic qualities, including its natural, unspoilt character.” Davies said the lookout is currently closed for approximately four weeks during construction and is expected to re-open in early-September. “We apologise for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause residents and visitors, and thank them for their patience and understanding. There are several other adjacent lookouts in the precinct that will remain open for people to use and enjoy,” he said. The works represent one of the actions emerging from the Split Point Lighthouse Precinct Masterplan, which the committee jointly developed with Surf Coast Shire in 2009.

Sign points to mistake BY ELEANOR WOODS IT TOOK a 10-year-old girl to notice a council slip up on a Torquay street sign. Ellie Nigro noticed that at one end of the street the sign said Loch Ard Drive and the other end it read Lochard Drive. “I always look at the signs when we are driving and read them and I thought, ‘Hey, that one was different’. It caught my eye,” she said. “I thought it was weird. I thought it must be another street or something.” The Torquay College student had recently brushed up on the historical Great Ocean Road Loch Ard ship sinking, which made the mistake stand out in her mind. “I had seen it written, and I knew you didn’t spell it like that,” she said. Ellie’s mother, Corinne, was surprised the mistake had been overlooked. “The Loch Ard ship sinking is a significant part of the area’s history. A lot of people died. Changing the spelling to Lochard makes it lose its meaning,” she said. The Nigro family wrote to the Surf Coast Shire about the two different signs and Ellie was thanked by council for being on the ball. The council confirmed the correct spelling was indeed Loch Ard and said it would have an engineer replace the incorrect sign. Spot the difference: Torquay’s Ellie Nigro, 10, noticed a mistake in a Surf Coast street sign.
Bushfire meeting out of the blue BY ELEANOR WOODS A BUSHFIRE Royal Commission Community Consultation was held in Anglesea on Friday night – but the lack of communication about the event meant many voices went unheard. The State Government is undertaking a series of meetings throughout the state in response to the commission’s recommendations. A group of around 50 Anglesea residents convened at Anglesea Memorial Hall in McMillan Street putting forward ideas to be taken back to the Premier’s office to help shape the Government’s final response to the investigation into last year’s February fires. Independent facilitators hosted the evening, which was also attended by a group of members from various government sectors including the Department of Primary Industries, the Office of Emergency Services, the Department of Human Resources, the Department of Sustainability and Environment, Parks Victoria, and the
Building Commission. Oddly, the Royal Commission Community Consultation was held in the town on the same night as the Annual Anglesea CFA Awards Night, meaning CFA members could not attend. The residents that did manage to get their views heard were happy for the opportunity to do so. Anglesea’s Paul Weight and James Bews hoped their views would be taken on board. “Anglesea is a very high risk area. The things we were most concerned about were the need to clarify the ‘Stay or Go’ policy and to increase community education surrounding bushfires,” Bews said. “It is a real shame the CFA couldn’t be here because they are the locals who put their lives on the line. They are experienced and could’ve contributed a lot to these discussions,” he said. If any member of the community wishes to put forward their views, feedback can be directed to the Premiere at www.premier .vic.gov.au

Ann puts family first BELLARINE-BASED Family First candidate for Corangamite, Ann Wojczuk, recently launched her bid for the marginal seat. Wojczuk, who grew up and currently resides on the Bellarine, is pushing for a stronger family voice in Canberra as the August 21 federal election draws closer. “I am running for Family First because families need a voice in Australian politics,” she said. “We need real people looking out for real families. I believe that stronger, healthier families make stronger, better societies.” Wojczuk is married with two teenage daughters and can be often seen driving through Ocean Grove in her 1962 EK station wagon, loaded up with kids, surfboards and a camera. “I love to listen, learn and engage with people within the community, and I am a passionate speaker
on motivation, leadership and personal development issues,” she said. “I am always available for a cup of coffee and a chat with friends or to help untangle an issue when it arises.” Numerous years working in and with the Corangamite community has given Wojczuk a deep understanding of the issues and pressures that face families today. She has a passion for a healthy, sustainable community and family life, dedicating her time and energy to both. “Corangamite families need a voice in Canberra and policy and legislation must work for and support Australian families,” she said. “Our communities also need to have healthy levels of support in health, childcare, education, public transport and infrastructure.”

Warralily releases next stage WE HAVE
LOCAL buyers will have a chance for a greener outlook on life with the release of Warralily’s first park frontage home sites this Saturday. Stage 2A, consisting of 27 exclusive home sites ranging from 434m² to 705m², will include allotments fronting Warralily’s conservation reserve and Armstrong Creek parklands. Stage 2A is the third land release, brought forward due to high demand after the first two stages sold out, and home sites in Stage 2A will be sold on a ‘first in, best dressed’ basis. The newest release will provide residents with easy access to the walking tracks and green open spaces
that will form a critical part of the development. With one third of the new community designated for open space, the majority of homes in Warralily will be within just 400 metres of a local park, playground or sporting reserve. Warralily sales and marketing manager, Crystall Mousios, said the commitment to parks and open space will not only help to connect residents with one another but also encourage an active, community focused lifestyle. “Typically, new housing estates commit around 10 per cent of their space to public open space, so Warralily is really going to offer residents something
better,” she said. “A number of home sites in Stage 2A will provide buyers with a fantastic outlook over the conservation reserve and Armstrong Creek parklands and all will be only a short walk to Warralily’s extensive walking path network that will connect residents to nearby schools, cafes and shops.” Warralily’s inclusion of vast amounts of public open space is underpinned by broader initiatives promoting the benefits of parks within communities. Interested buyers can visit the Warralily Sales Office at 259 Charlemont Road, Connewarre, phone 1300 661 719 or visit www.warralily.com.au
Farmer Con’s fresh fruit visit TORQUAY farmer, Con Kamvoussoulis, traded his tractor for the classroom recently when he visited Corio Primary School to help teach children about fruit grown in their local area and the importance of eating fresh produce. Kamvoussoulis spent the morning at school on behalf of Coles and the Red Cross Good Start Breakfast Club Programme. Kamvoussoulis, who is a supplier of tomatoes to Coles stores, said the opportunity to teach kids about farming in the local area and support the Red Cross Good Start Breakfast Club Programme was both rewarding and an enjoyable experience.

“It’s always great to spend time with children and show them how the fruit they have for breakfast each day is grown,” he said. Since 2006, Coles has been proudly supporting the program and its endeavour to educate not only children, but also their families about the importance of healthy eating at home and school. The Red Cross Good Start Breakfast Club Programme operates in over 260 schools nationwide, and provides free breakfasts and nutrition education to positively influence attitudes towards healthy eating, while also improving life skills and the ability to learn.

PROTECTING THE BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT OF THE BARRABOOL HILLS
Why did State Government, City of Greater Geelong and Surf Coast Shire allocate more than $2 million towards the purchase of McAdam Park by Motorcycling Australia without considering the impact of organised motorcyle racing on the Barrabool community and environment? Who decided that a major regional motorsports facility in Barrabool was a good idea? What conditions did State Government and Surf Coast Shire place on their grants? Why have these not been disclosed to the public? Why did Michael Crutchfield MP say there were “no planning issues on its current operations” when there is uncertainty about the extent of the existing use right, an unenforced land management plan and numerous buildings and works that have no planning permits? Why wouldn’t Michael Crutchfield MP meet with community representatives to hear their concerns? Why hasn’t Surf Coast Shire enforced its own planning scheme? Why has this community been represented so poorly by those we relied on?

Dear Editor, I play an active part in my town to build a sense of pride and community spirit. Building a community that is proud of its environment and social standing is an important legacy to leave future generations. The owners of the Beach Hotel have moved into this community and their response has been, â€˜How can I best exploit the community I am in for my own financial gain? Letâ€™s see, I can sell alcohol, cigarettes and promote gamblingâ€™. All three elements are addictive and their negative impacts on individual lives, families and communities are well documented. They do not foster healthy lifestyles or contribute anything positive to the Jan Juc community, and instead promote divisive alternatives that can damage a cohesive community.

Students severely disadvantaged
Shadow Minister for Public Transport & Shadow Minister for Roads
Dear Editor, Before casting their vote at the coming election Corangamite voters should consider the changes made to the Youth Allowance, with the support of both Labor and the Coalition, that will severely disadvantage tertiary students on the Surf Coast. While some lower income families will benefit, all middle income families will be severely disadvantaged. The changes have created a two-tier system for eligibility to the independent Youth Allowance, which rural students desperately need to cover their living expenses when they relocate to attend the university of their choice.

Students on the Surf Coast have to meet the allbut-impossible criteria of working for an average of 30 hours over 18 months to qualify for the allowance â€“ delaying their tertiary studies by two years. This is because most of the Corangamite electorate is deemed to be Inner Regional â€“ meaning it is assumed to be close enough for students to live at home and travel to and from university! Bizarrely, Warrnambool, Sale, Echuca and Ararat are also classed as Inner Regional. Those outside these arbitrary boundaries remain eligible under the old, more accessible criteria, of earning $19,000 over 18 months. The questions that voters need to ask both Darren Cheeseman and Sarah Henderson are: â€˘ Where, in the small rural communities that make up this electorate, are so many unskilled 18 year olds going to find full time jobs for 18 months to qualify? â€˘ Given that these jobs donâ€™t exist, where are the families of these students going to find the estimated $20,000/year to send their kids to university in a major city? â€˘ Why did both major parties support a system that so obviously disadvantages rural students wanting to enter tertiary education? There are many families, and 18 year olds voting for the first time, who will use their vote to remind Mr Cheeseman in particular that he was elected to represent their interests, not just to follow the party line. This should be of particular concern to a representative in one of the most marginal electorates in the country. Mark Smith Anglesea
No good being married Dear Editor, With the pointy end of the election campaign approaching, I would like our local candidates to take their concerns away from the surging hordes threatening our northern borders and from the melting icebergs in the Antarctic and to focus on something that is really affecting millions of the most vulnerable people in the Australian community. There has been enshrined in Federal legislation for many years the most blatant regulation that discriminates against two of the most important and respected pillars of our society â€“ marriage and old age pensioners. Married age pensioners to be precise. You see, if you are an individual who qualifies for the age pension, who is single, you receive a basic pension at the princely rate of $322. But, if you happen to be a married individual who qualifies, you are paid $242 per week. So, by being married, you end up with a loss of $4,160 per year â€“ just for being married! So, if you didnâ€™t like that and agreed with government legislation that being married must somehow be wrong, you can get divorced and receive a 25 per cent pay rise. This is a farce. It is blatant, illogical, bald, unequivocal discrimination. No more, no less and it is enshrined in our federal legislation and perpetrated by a government department upon millions of the most vulnerable citizens of our great country, who deserve better. I invite, with great anticipation, all of our local candidates to address this real problem and to reply
to our readers in this column with what action they propose to take to (a) increase the pension rate for both single and married couples and (b) specifically, to redress the discrimination towards married individual age pensioners. Ed Dimech Torquay
Torquay kindergarten needs support Dear Editor, In parliament recently, I highlighted the lack of facilities and support provided to parents with preschool aged children in one of the fastest growing areas of the state. Torquay Kindergarten currently provides services to 160 three-year-old and four-year-old children on a weekly basis. Torquay has experienced rapid population growth in recent years, which the government has failed to accommodate with extra facilities. As a result Torquayâ€™s kindergarten can no longer keep up with enrolments. I have been informed that due to the Brumby governmentâ€™s lack of foresight and the resulting capacity constraints itâ€™s unlikely that a three-yearold kinder programme will be offered next year. This obviously will leave a gap in the development of childrenâ€™s social and learning skills. I informed parliament the pre-school community in Torquay is keen to have kindergarten services expanded and has applied to have land behind the current shire offices allocated to allow an expansion at the current site. They have been told the land has been set aside by the Member for South Barwon Michael Crutchfield for an expanded secondary school. This is despite the government failing to commit a single dollar to an expanded school in Torquay. Not allowing the kindergarten room for expansion denies its committee the opportunity to apply for funding grants they might otherwise have received. It is staggering that a regional city the size of Torquay has been left to languish with a limited capacity kindergarten to serve the needs of its pre-school children. The Torquay Kindergarten Committee has been told a new kindergarten to cater to the growing needs of their community could, be the best part of a decade away, and located north of Torquay. There is a fear that this would mean any new facility would be located at Armstrong Creek, 10 km away, rather than Torquay itself. From 2013 government requirements will demand all four-year-old children receive 15 hours of kindergarten time per week. Current facilities in Torquay will be stretched to meet this requirement. I call on the Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development to be more proactive and thoroughly examine the need for immediately expanding the current Kindergarten. This would enable it to cope with forthcoming government requirements and maintain three-yearold kinder services. The Minister should guarantee a commitment to making resources and infrastructure available in Torquay to facilitate demand at this centre, something she continues to espouse publicly but fails to deliver in growth areas like Torquay.â€?

The Principal of Christian College, Mr Glen McKeeman has recently announced to College families details of new initiatives and structures in teaching and learning
that are currently creating a strong focus and emphasis on academic outcomes for Christian College students at all levels. The appointment of Directors of Teaching and Learning in key faculty areas has provided the academic staff with opportunities to reflect upon and review the teaching and learning that takes place in each area of their program. Part of this process has been the development of enrichment and enhancement opportunities which provide talented and high achieving students with challenges to further engage their interest in their own learning experience. Mr McKeeman recently stated â€˜All units of work studied by students will be considered in relation to differing student learning styles, the revised Bloomâ€™s Taxonomy and Gardinerâ€™s Multiple Intelligences in order to create broader and more engaging learning for our students. These initiatives, combined with maintaining the strong pastoral care and structured discipline programs, enable our students to enjoy a supportive and engaging learning environment which encourages them to achieve their best.â€™ A new enrichment and enhancement
program (Qâ€™ed) has been carefully developed over the past months. This new initiative specifically addresses the needs of highly achieving and talented students. The development team comprises Heads and Deputy Heads of Campus, Directors of key faculty areas together with the Head of Christian College Institute of Higher Education, Mr. John Rose PSM. The Qâ€™ed program consists of independent learning modules aimed to develop the thinking, creative and communication processes for students. The learning framework will challenge the participants to consider wide ranging, innovative responses to local and global issues. Qâ€™ed also incorporates learning experiences that encourage divergent thinking, multidisciplinary concepts as well as co-operative working scenarios. Each year the units completed will culminate in an exposition presentation to the Christian College community. Principal, Glen McKeeman said recently â€˜Christian College is proud to be able to introduce these exciting learning initiatives at a time when students who gain a Scholarship place in 2011 will be eligible for inclusion.â€™

Take a Fresh look at food DO YOU think about what you eat? If not, the movie Fresh will make you think twice about what you put in your mouth and where it comes from. The movie will be shown as part of the Surf Coast Energy Group’s film festival this Friday from 7pm at the SurfWorld Museum. Fresh takes a facinating look at the rapid transformation of agriculture into an industrial model. It explores the consequences of this, including food contamination, environmental
pollution, depletion of natural resources and morbid obesity. It features views from farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing their food system to a more locally based one. David Bell, local farmer and co-ordinator of the Torquay Farmers market, will be talking after the film to help the audience think about what they've seen from a local perspective. He is a passionate advocate of organic and locally grown produce. “We've had the farmers markets for the past 18
months now and it has been going very well,” Bell said. “I'm trying to provide an outlet for local growers so people know who has grown it and where it is from. The stall owners have even said to me business is booming from it.” The film will be shown free and is open to anyone in the community, with fresh, organic popcorn on offer.

Stories harvest a relationship LORNE Nursing Home played host to 60 people for an afternoon tea with a difference recently. The occasion was the presentation of The Wellsprings Harvesting Stories Anthology â€“ a collection of interviews of community elders about their relationship to and passion for gardens. The afternoon tea was prepared by Years 7 and 8 students from Lorne-Aireys Inlet P-12 School, who conducted the interviews of the homeâ€™s residents. Prior to some of the students reading out their interviews, they took part in workshops on environmentally sound garden and food production practices, food miles and recipes from the garden by eco-living officer, Andrew Lucas. The students also enjoyed cooking lessons from local chef, Luke Morgan, with the menu reflecting the holistic health and wellbeing ethos of the project. The innovative project came about from Lorneâ€™s Wellsprings Group â€“ a partnership between LorneCH Community Building Initiative, Fig Tree Community House, Lorne Community Hospital, Surf Coast Shire Council and the extended Lorne community. â€œThe event was a really special experience to see such a buzz of enthusiasm. The Wellsprings team and their partners never cease to amaze me with what
they achieve,â€? said Lorne Hospital chief executive officer, Janelle Bryce. Wellsprings is based on a vision of the wellgrounded individual meaningfully connected to self, purposefully participating in community, and vitally connected to place and environment. Harvesting Stories is part of Wellsprings-EcoLiving Back to the Garden 2010 programme. This yearâ€™s Wellsprings activities are themed Back to the Garden in order to link health promotion with the environmental aims of eco-living. The activities are aimed at addressing the health and wellbeing needs which were identified by the broad Lorne community at the All will be Well Health & Wellbeing Forum 2009. At that forum, both younger and older people were identified as priority groups with regard to holistic health. Among the interviewees are parents, friends, relatives, and residents of the Lorne Community Hospital Nursing Home. These interviews appear in written form in the anthology collated by the Wellsprings team. In addition to this written Pictured during the Harvesting Stories afternoon recently were (from left) Lorne Community Hospitalâ€™s anthology, the Harvesting Stories preparation and Heather Ramp, Sue Roberts, Sarah McNaughton, Year 7 student, Angela Beeby, teacher, and Tamsin event was recorded on film by Sue Roberts.

Knee study confirms weighty issue A GEELONG osteoporosis study recently published found that obesity in young adult women has a detrimental effect on their knees. Sharon Brennan, researcher with the Geelong Osteoporosis Study, said there is longitudinal
evidence for the importance of avoiding weight gain in women during early to middle adulthood. â€œWeight gain in women during the early to middle adulthood age bracket is associated with an increased risk of bony lesions, an irregularity in the growth
or structure of a bone, and a trend for increased cartilage defects in the knee joint,â€? Brennan said. â€œCartilage defects occur early in osteoarthritis, and are present prior to clinical disease. They are also predictors of loss of cartilage in the knee, which
occurs early in osteoarthritis.â€? The findings suggest that avoiding weight gain in early female adulthood may reduce structural changes in the knee and diminish the risk of knee osteoarthritis.

concentration, reduced energy levels, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, depression, impotence and lack of libido. â€œMy Sleep Clinic has enabled people to regain lives and enjoy quiet nights and undisturbed sleep in the same room with their partners. â€œThese people travel without the embarrassment of loud snoring. â€œThey enjoy a life feeling refreshed, invigorated and full of energy when they wake â€“ without the constant tiredness, concentration lapses and mood swings.â€? George said many people have explained they did not seek treatment for their snoring because they did not understand snoring and sleep apnea or the impact it was having on their health. â€œAbout 40 per cent of people who snore have a
disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea; 95 per cent are unaware they have this condition,â€? he said. â€œObstructive sleep apnea is caused by an inherent narrow throat and throat muscles that cause an obstruction of the airways. â€œBreathing stops for up to a minute until the brain registers the lack of oxygen and sends a message to open the upper airway, typically with a snort or gasp, without waking the sleeper â€“ but often alarming partners.â€? The highly qualified team associated with My Sleep Clinic includes a dentist specialising in dental sleep medicine, two sleep physicians, two sleep scientists and a sleep psychologist. Health fund rebates are available at My Sleep Clinic, located at 6 James Street, Geelong â€“ so book now on 5273 4644.

A NEWLY released information sheet is set to help enhance the health of diabetes sufferers. Approximately 74 per cent of those with diabetes engage in no, or low levels of exercise, and only 30 per cent of people who have been reported in taking action for diabetes have been shown to exercise most days. This is despite current evidence highlighting the benefits of exercise. Developed by Sports Medicine Australia, Sports Dietitians Australia and Exercise and Sports Science Australia, the Diabetes and Exercise Information Sheet provides details on the ideal levels of exercise that should be undertaken by those with diabetes. Exercise physiologist, Dr Mike Climstein, said this resource provides diabetes sufferers with the knowledge they need to lead an optimal lifestyle. â€œThe prevalence of diabetes in Australia is staggering with approximately 1.7 million people reported to have the disease with diabetes being the sixth leading cause of death,â€? he said. â€œThe cost directly associated with diabetes has been estimated to be $812 million in recent years. â€œLifestyle modification, including a controlled diet and regular exercise can help in effectively managing diabetes. â€œActivities such as choosing low GI foods; reducing fat intake; watching alcohol intake; ensuring a balance of other nutrients (calcium, iron, fibre), combined with cardiorespiratory and resistance exercise are essential in good diabetes management.

Understanding investments BY RODD BUDGE FROM BENDIGO FINANCIAL PLANNING THERE are many different reasons why people want to invest but the most common reasons are to make money and to live a comfortable lifestyle in the future. Investing is all about making your money work harder for you and generating additional income if required. The type of investment you chose will usually depend on two factors. The first factor is whether your investment strategy has a short-term or long-term goal, and the second factor is the level of risk you are willing to take. Your investment timeframe and risk profile will then define the types of assets that will make up your investment portfolio. These may include cash, fixed interest, property and shares. Investment assets are grouped into classes according to their features. The most appropriate asset class for your investment portfolio will depend on the level of risk you are willing to take and the amount of time you want to keep your investment.
Different investments have different associated risks, essentially, it comes back to you. How willing and comfortable you are to take the level of risk involved with the investment? Generally speaking, the higher the potential return, the higher the risk. The longer you keep your investments, the harder your money will work for you. Although it may be disheartening to see your investments fall, history shows that long-term investments are generally rewarded over time. Remember the reasons why you started your investment portfolio and what you wanted to achieve from the investment. The three golden rules to investing are to start early, diversify and monitor. By starting early, with compounding returns, even small amounts can grow considerably over time. The earlier you start and the longer you invest, the more time your investments have to grow. By diversifying, you can reduce the level of investment risk by spreading your money across different asset classes. This means that you are not putting all your eggs in
the one basket. You should then monitor your investments ongoing to ensure that it is achieving your investment goals. As always, I recommend that you speak to a financial planner who will be able to assist you in ascertaining your current financial situation, attitude to risk and investment timeframes in order to create an investment strategy that is tailored to your needs. Once you have agreed to the strategy, your financial planner will develop a plan to help you meet your investment goals.

Interest rate decision well received POTENTIAL and existing property market participants will be cheering the Reserve Bank of Australia’s decision last week to keep the cash rate steady at 4.5 per cent for a third consecutive month. It hasn’t remained stable for this length of time since the September quarter of last year. Australia’s largest independently-owned mortgage broker, Mortgage Choice, sees the decision as a positive influence on what is sure to be a very active spring selling
season. “We were really happy to see the June quarter inflation data was in line with the Reserve Bank’s expectations,” said company spokesperson, Kristy Sheppard. “It would have a come as a great surprise if the official interest rate was increased this month. “It is likely the rate will sit at 4.5 per cent until at least the next round of CPI data is released on October 27.
“This will be a great relief for anyone repaying a variable interest loan or approaching the end of their fixed rate term, just as it will be for those who are looking forward to jumping into the market during spring. “A rate rise would surely have discouraged many people from acting on their property plans, be that selling up or purchasing. Now, there is another reason to move ahead with confidence.”
Market View with tracey watts
The descent of man?
THIS COLUMN is often accused of being unrelentingly and pessimistic, and to a certain extent that is true. The reason for this is that we feel very strongly that the modern world is going through a historic shift in its economic development, a shift rarely debated in mainstream forums. In this context it was wonderful to hear Niall Ferguson give this year’s John Bonython Lecture for The Centre for Independent Studies last week. Niall Ferguson is an internationally acclaimed economic historian and author of The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World. He is worried that the orthodox view that history moves cyclically and slowly is incorrect and makes decision makers unprepared for crises. Ferguson feels that great powers and empires are complex systems which can appear to operate quite stably for some time until there comes a moment when a very small trigger can cause these systems to “go critical”. His concern is that our system is close to critical pointing out that “imperial falls are associated with fiscal crises: sharp imbalances between revenues and expenditures, and the mounting cost of servicing a mountain of public debt.” His primary concern is the US. The Congressional Budget Office’s latest projections show that by 2050, US net interest payments will be 85 per cent of revenue and debt will be 344 per cent of GDP. By any meaningful measure, the fiscal position of the US is at present worse than that of Greece. When asked about Australia, Ferguson replies, “Australians are simply not thinking about such things. A favourite phrase of this great country is “No dramas”. But dramas lie ahead as the nasty fiscal arithmetic of imperial decline drives yet another great power over the edge of chaos.” Tracey Watts is a director of Third Wave Group.

By Enzo Raimondo, CEO REIV
Fire Services Levy: Time for a change THE 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission has recommended that the state replaces the Fire Services Levy with a property-based levy as the current system â€“ a tax on insurance companies that is, in turn, levied on insurance premiums â€“ is inequitable. The levy is used to fund the fire services. The inequitable nature of the levy has been highlighted in the aftermath of the catastrophic fires in Victoria last year. The State Government has suggested that only around 87 per cent of affected households and property owners had adequate levels of insurance. The outcome of this is that, while the entire community is able to access the services of either the MFB or the CFA, only those citizens who take out the suitable level of insurance are contributing to the scheme at adequate levels, so not everyone is paying their fair share for this critical service. But as a public service the MFB and CFA fought these fires and did not discriminate against properties depending on their level of insurance. This is not a new issue; the REIV, along with many other organisations, has called for reform of the levy over the past decade and it would welcome reform. The State Government has, thankfully, already started the process. Earlier this year they released a green paper canvassing a number of options, including the one recommended by the Royal Commission. The REIV has responded to the green paper arguing for a property-based levy and, as a result, we look forward to the acceptance and implementation of this recommendation.
Award-winning run continues TORQUAY-BASED MG Design and Building has continued its recent run of success by taking out a top award at the recent Building Designers Association of Victoria Awards. The company won the â€˜Best Residential Designâ€™ for a house in the $500,000 to $1,000,000 category at the prestigious awards â€“ beating off a host of challengers from around the state. The award â€“ for a home designed and built for local clients, in Alleyne Avenue Torquay â€“ is the seventh major achievement for MG Design and Building over the past 12 months. â€œItâ€™s wonderful recognition and a bonus really, for all our hard work and dedication to designing â€˜oneoffâ€™ homes,â€? said director, Mark Gleeson. â€œItâ€™s also great exposure for us and helps to keep our name out there in what is a very competitive climate.â€?
The 2010 award winners are also featured in a coffee-table style magazine â€“ Winning Designs, available shortly in all newsagents. Gleeson said the business â€“ which concentrates on designing and building homes from Torquay to Lorne â€“ already had strong exposure to Melbourne through existing clients. â€œProbably 60 to 70 per cent of our clients are from Melbourne who are either building a holiday home or retirement home down along the coast,â€? he said. â€œThe balance is locals, seeing the benefit in having a home designed and built for their individual requirements and lifestyle. â€œWe receive excellent word-of-mouth business from these clients, as well as from people who see our sign out the front of the homes that are under construction.
â€œAnd then, you get the extra exposure from winning awards such as these.â€? BDAV executive officer, Brian Morison, said this yearâ€™s awards were a showcase of Victorian building design talent. â€œWeâ€™re well aware that Victoria is home to some tremendous building designers. The entries we received this year, and the winners of the various awards, are testimony to that,â€? Morison said. â€œWeâ€™ve awarded homes in Inverloch, Hepburn Springs, Torquay, Warrnambool, Newhaven, Shepparton, Smythesdale, and Blairgowrie, and weâ€™re really excited to see so much talent in regional Victoria.â€?

The history of the Joseph H Scammell, and the seaside cottage â€œScammell Houseâ€? in Pride St, Torquay. The scroll-work of the wrecked shipâ€™s quarterdeck is retained as ornamentation on the verandah, and many fittings bear the shipâ€™s inscriptions. The narrow door gives ingress and egress to the old saloon, the living room on the lower floor of this double decker cottage. Portholes provide light in the north & south walls. All available fittings and timbers were secured from the wreckage to fit out the cottage. Some relics were stolen, but the atmosphere of the â€˜ Joseph H. Scammell ervades the building.
